National bird’s honor being destroyed  

Credit:  Published: Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013 | www.bcrnews.com ~~

Friday, Dec. 6, 2013 – another day that will “live in infamy.”

It’s been reported that on the day before the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941, the Obama Administration said it will give the OK for wind farm companies to kill or maim eagles for up to 30 years without penalty.

In 1789, George Washington became our nation’s first president and the American Bald Eagle became our country’s official bird. Almost 150 years later the American Bald Eagle was protected under the National Emblem Act of 1940.

President John F. Kennedy later wrote, “The Founding Fathers made an appropriate choice when they selected the bald eagle as the emblem of the nation. The fierce beauty and proud independence of this great bird aptly symbolizes the strength and freedom of America.”

The destruction of the symbol of our great country, the United States of America, is going to be allowed because of the greed of the wind energy industry (owned by China, Spain, Ireland and who knows what other countries), and the desire of the President to go “green.” I’ve really developed a strong distaste for that color.

Countless young Americans have died fighting to protect our nation, which has as its emblem this wonderful bird. I wonder what the veterans of World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War and the currently enlisted young men and women still fighting and being killed, might think about the Administration’s decision?
